According to a statement from E!: "The couple will openly share their new life while setting up their new home and preparing for their first child together.''

A special celebrating the birth of their baby will follow.

Jeff Olde, E!'s Executive Vice President of Original Programming & Development added: "Very few love stories have created as much pop culture buzz as Rob and Chyna's, and we are thrilled to see Rob in such a happy place. We are excited to share the next chapter in their relationship." 

Rob & Chyna will premiere later this year, the network says.

Ryan Seacrest Productions and Bunim/Murray Productions are making the show for E! with Ryan, Gil Goldschein, Jeff Jenkins, Farnaz Farjam and Ailee O'Neill as executive producers along with Rob, Chyna and Rob's mother Kris Jenner. 

It was revealed earlier this year that the pair were planning a reality TV show and hoped to get Ryan, who produces Keeping Up With The Kardashians, involved. 

A source told HollywoodLife in February: "Rob and Blac spent almost two hours meeting with reality show producers in a Beverly Hills office. The meeting was with Ryan Seacrest's production team. Rob would like Ryan on board as an executive producer because Rob knows Ryan has done so well producing TV for his family. The show could be in production very quickly if it gets the green light from a major network like E!"

Rob, 29 and 28-year-old Chyna - who has a three-year-old son King Cairo with her former fiancé Tyga - caused controversy when they first started dating as she has been feuding with Rob's sister Kylie Jenner for some time. 

Chyna was furious when Tyga, 26, started dating Kylie, 18, soon after their split but she recently insisted that she and the Kardashian/Jenner family have put their differences behind them.
